Not long ago, Brooklyn's queer nightlife options were relatively limited, so some Kings County boys sought to correct that situation with GUMBO (Gay. DUMBO. Party.) at Galapagos Art Space
. The shindig quickly became a hit with cute guys (and girls) who didn't want to cross the East River to mingle. These days, GUMBOs happen in "pop-out" form at venues around the city; for their third annual holiday version, the kids headed back to Galapagos—which seems to be recovering nicely after taking a beating from Hurricane Sandy.
